URL URI URN Implimentations


The formal way to specify the URL of a directory or concrete resource in a Geometry Service repository is as follows:

gs://host.of.geometry.service[:port]/name[:revision]/name[:revision]/...etc[:revision}[/]

[port] Port is an optional paramater, default is 5309.

[revision] Revision is an optional per path step parameter, default is HEAD.

[/] A trailing backslash indicates a directory, whereas the absense of a backslash indicates a concrete resource.


Examples

Requesting

gs://geoserv.brlcad.org/wheeled/civilian/cars/sports/lotus/ 

would return a directory listing.


Where as requesting

gs://geoserv.brlcad.org/wheeled/civilian/cars/sports/lotus/elise.g

would return valid geometry.


and requesting

gs://geoserv.brlcad.org/wheeled/civilian/cars/sports/lotus/elise.png

would return a PNG image of the associated geometry.
